Salah joint-favourite alongside Ronaldo for 2018 Ballon d’Or

| 24.04.2018

Mohamed Salah has been installed as the joint-favourite to win the 2018 Ballon d’Or.

The Liverpool ace netted his 42nd and 43rd goals of the season against AS Roma on Tuesday night.

And that has forced our traders to slash his odds to 11/8 on him becoming the first player other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo to claim the gong since 2007.

That means he’s now as likely as Ronaldo and ahead of Messi (7/2) in the betting for the award.

The Egyptian ace joined the Reds from Roma in the summer.

And we now make his new club the 6/4 favourites to win the Champions League following last night’s devastating success at Anfield.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Salah has averaged almost a goal-per-game in all competitions this season and given Liverpool’s current position in Europe, it’s easy to see why he’s priced so short to win this year’s Ballon d’Or.”
